Level 6

Hi @shivabk 

You can run following commands

bpmedialist -rt robot_type -rn robot_number -U / -L

you can also run availaible_media.cmd to find available tapes in the robot.


Level 6

What information are you looking to get via commandline? 

You can dump the tape library inventory with this command:

/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmcheckxxx -rt tld -rn 0 -rh master_server_name -empty_map

You can also get the robot device address with this command:

/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tpconfig -d | grep "robotic path" | awk '{print $5}'

I work in a mainly Linxu/Unix shop, so you'll need to adjust for Windows as best fits the commandline syntax.

For tape volume info:

/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmquery -a -b

For specific tape info:

/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/vmquery -m tape_barcode_number

Hope this helps.
